Just a few years ago, the Cog would fire up three or four steam locomotives everyday from April to October. With the arrival of four John Deere-powered diesels, steam has been a less frequent visitor to the top of Mt. Washington, but the railroad says it does not plan on getting rid of steam anytime soon.

Special museum tours and steam demonstrations will also be available.
